Students, faculty, staff mark International Day of Peace
To mark the United Nations International Day of Peace on Friday, Sept. 21, as well as to start preparing the campus for the Dalai Lama’s visit on Oct. 8 and 9, SU faculty, staff and students participated in forming a “living peace sign” on the Kenneth A. Shaw Quad at the lunch hour.
The activity was accompanied by the sounding of the Crouse Chimes and a moment of silence. Then, an a cappella group sang “A Song About Peace.”
The events were planned in conjunction with “Eat Together for Peace,” a weeklong program of food, arts and culture that is an invitation to take peacemaking personally. ET4P is an extension of the Perpetual Peace Project (PPP), organized and presented by The SU Humanities Center in The College of Arts and Sciences.
